's something to be encouraged by. we actually think the opposite. so defense spending dragged down the report. that's not getting any better. the sequestration will likely go through. inventory rebuild, i think that that is premature to expect that. there's still excess inventories in autos, like trucks, for example, and then global trade, which looks considerably fairly weak and will probably stay weak. whereas the parts of the report that were viewed as strong, capital spending but most importantly consumption are likely to be very weak in the first half of the year. we just raised taxes by $200 billion. you hear the president, he wants more tax hikes, he wants more spending cuts. we think capital spending will get better through the course of the year. but what we heard through corporate america is that the near term outlook is still pretty soft. there's parts of the report that people took encouragement from are going to get worse during the first half of the year and that we're not going to necessarily print another zero on gdp. >> everyone sees the markets rocketing on friday who called
